conifer fire

Over 40 acres of wooded area and pastureland are blackened Tuesday after a fire that raced north from Conifer Road. The cause of the blaze is still being investigated but firemen are urging everyone to keep from burning trash or debris until some measurable rain falls. "The burn ban was listed for the county but there is an increasing danger every day we go without any rain," said Henryetta firechief David Bullard. No houses or outbuilding were threatened by this fire but recent blazes south of Henryetta crept up next to one home and came close to several barns. Fire departmetns from Schulter, Plainview and Henryetta were called to help control this blaze.
